October tradition

After my date with a couple of very nice X-ray tech types yesterday, we were off to the 47th Annual Catoctin Colorfest in Thurmont, MD. The day was absolutely perfect for the event with beautiful blue skies and temperatures ranging from cool in the morning to warmer and sunnier as the day wore on.

This two-day thing -- one of the largest Arts & Crafts Shows on the east coast -- is huuuuge, with hundreds of artists and vendors and so much to see. We were there about 5 hours and I know we missed a lot even though we walked all over what seemed like the whole town of Thurmont! We bought some seasonal decorative things, some Christmas gifts, and snacked on warm apple dumplings and crispy kettle-cooked chips, fresh and still warm right from the kettle, Delicious!

home with me... but I refrained

It was a full day, and we were a good tired when we got home, but it was fun and we're looking forward to next year's gala.
